Russian authorities examine after photographs emerge of Boris Nemtsov assassin allegedly having fun with jail ‘feast’


The 2015 killing of Boris Nemtsov shocked Russians, and now images posted on-line of the person who assassinated him apparently posing in entrance of a slap-up meal are producing appreciable anger.

The photographs, taken in an Irkutsk penal colony, present Zaur Dadaev and a bunch of different males surrounded by kebabs, soups, fruits, and juices. In response, Russian jail authorities have launched an investigation to find out the situations wherein he’s being held. 

They can even look into whether or not Dadaev, a former safety official, used a cell phone on the facility, the place he was saved earlier than being transferred to jail. The final sign-in to his account on social community Odnoklassniki was on July 8, 2018.

Photos supposedly of Dadaev’s group have been revealed on one other Russian platform, VKontakte, which is considered analogous to Facebook. The footage are dated July 3, 2018. Back then, Dadaev was being held in a maximum-security penal colony in Irkutsk, in Eastern Siberia. He was later transferred to a facility in close by Angarsk for a yr, after which returned to Irkutsk.

In 2017, Dadaev was handed a 20-year sentence for murdering Nemtsov, near the Kremlin in Moscow, in February of 2015. Four co-accused got phrases of between 11 and 19 years, with the purported organizers of the killing, Ruslan Geremeev, and Ruslan Mukhudinov, positioned on the needed record.

Nemtsov was a politician and businessman, most related to Russia’s tumultuous 1990s, who served as a deputy prime minister within the Boris Yeltsin period. He remained energetic within the liberal opposition motion.

The story has reminded many Russians of one other jail ‘banquet’ scandal, involving Vyacheslav Tsepovyaz, one of many nation’s most ruthless thugs who performed a reign of terror within the southern Krasnodar area. The gangster, jailed for sending a loss of life squad to butcher 12 individuals, together with 4 youngsters, was photographed tucking into crab meat and caviar at a penal colony within the Far East.

Dadaev’s lawyer claims he has finished nothing flawed. “It was clearly not Zaur who took the photos,” Roza Magomedova informed Moscow each day MK. “He calls me sometimes, but from a landline phone. The last time we spoke was in January. Overall, he has lost a lot of weight, his relatives are far away and cannot bring him food and other groceries. So I don’t understand why people are writing that he is overindulging. In what, apples?”

Meanwhile, a supply within the Prison Service defined that all the meals featured within the photographs might be purchased in jail retailers. “There is no exotic food or delicacies on the tables. It’s not caviar and crabs like in photos with Tsepovyaz,” MK quoted them as saying. “I was confused only by how the photos were taken. [Was it] on a mobile phone? That is prohibited.”
